Members of the team attended a workshop run by the University of London Computer Centre (ULCC) on producing reports within Moodle Virtual Learning Environments (VLEs).
The half-day included members from a variety of institutions and colleges using Moodle and it was apparent that, although the users had very different VLEs and came from very different educational establishments, everyone’s needs were similar. Some key elements were identified, including:
